Morris Truck’s Raclette Grilled Cheese is Worth the $7
I don’t know why fancy grilled cheese is the new
pie cupcake, but three grilled cheese trucks officially makes a trend. I’ve had my eye out for Morris Grilled Cheese since word on the street was they’re doing some fantastic things, and on the cheaper side. Also, they have duck fat! When they got a good review from Brian, I doubled my efforts to meet them at their usual Thursday spot on Park and 52nd. I was pleasantly surprised to find quite the crowd in front of the truck during lunch (gotta support!), and after a quick look at the menu, I chose to go with their Raclette sandwich.
Raclette is a milder semi-hard cow’s milk cheese excellent for melting, so I knew this was going to be good. The sandwich comes with pickled fennel stuffed in with the cheese between big slices of multigrain bread. I was in salty love; the cheese is fully melted, the fennel adds a nice crunch and tangy flavor, and the whole sandwich left me pretty satiated for a while. The sandwich is $7, but I consider this a decent price since Raclette does retail for around $15 a pound. You’re not going to get anything close to this good at your local deli with its sliced American cheese food on white bread.
